    • Delivered just what we wanted, eg entry without queuing, guided selection of important exhibits, easy view of Mona Lisa (due to early arrival) etc.

      One problem was arriving without cash for deposit for audio guides. Used debit card instead and same sum was deposited and reimbursed - but lost £4.77 on bank charges and...

    • We had a tough time finding our way in to the museum. Stood in the queue for tickets for quite some time due to ignorance. Some written guidelines with a map should be provided in the beginning itself at the office in this regard. Audio device was also of not much use.

    • The audio guide leaflet could be better and more detailed.
